Head to Head


Central Coast have a 3-0 record against Macarthur with no draws in three encounters. 

Their last meeting saw the Mariners come from behind to defeat the Bulls 2-1 away from home. 

Spanish midfielder Markel Susaeta opened the scoring for the home side before Central Coast fired back through defender Jack Clisby and attacker Daniel De Silva.

Central Coast Mariners Form


Central Coast enjoyed a strong finish to the regular season where they consolidated their place in third. 

Goals from defender Jack Clisby and forward Daniel De Silva saw the Mariners record a come-from-behind 2-1 win against Macarthur. 

Though the Mariners were unable to back up these heroics as they suffered a shock 2-0 loss at home to Newcastle. Central Coast were outplayed by their rivals as they could only muster the two attempts on target. 

But the side were able to put this result behind them and pick up a 2-0 win over Western United. 

Clisby opened the scoring in the 25th minute with the Mariners then forced to desperately defend their narrow lead. It was only until the 95th minute when midfielder Marco Urena put the result beyond doubt with a goal.

Central Coast will head into this elimination final with a fully fit squad.

Macarthur Form


Macarthur did enough to seal a top six finish in their inaugural A-League season.

Their season hit a hurdle when they suffered a 2-1 loss to the Mariners in their previous meeting. Despite opening the scoring through ex-Athletic Bilbao midfielder Markel Susaeta, the Bulls were unable to hold on and claim a result. 

Macarthur recovered well and held on to defeat Western United 2-1 in Sydney. Susaeta was again on the scoresheet, as was captain Mark Milligan. 

It was a nervy finish as Western United dominated the final ten minutes. Goalkeeper Adam Federici came to his side’s rescue on numerous occasions late in the match.

With finals wrapped up, Macarthur fielded a weakened squad to take on Wellington. The inexperience showed as the Phoenix stormed home in a 3-0 win to finish off the season.

Macarthur Injuries & Team News


Defender Aleksander Jovanovic will remain sidelined with a calf injury. French midfielder Loic Puyo will miss this final due to suspension after he was sent off in the loss to Wellington.
